UNIT is proud to announce the upgrade to myNova. In the new myNOVA, you can use the search bar located at the top to find anything you need. Just search and click – it’s that easy. Students can check their grades, access classes and find out when the next shuttle is coming – and much more. Faculty and staff can review their vacation balance, access internal forms, pay stubs, holiday schedule and campus directory – it’s all right there and easy to search.
The new myNOVA is a virtual one-stop shop, and is accessible anytime, anywhere.
UNIT is now introducing the use of Skype for Business Conference Bridge to replace the use of Avaya conference lines. Once the request for a Skype conference line is completed, you will receive an email from Skype for Business with your conference phone number and pin. This will be used to start a meeting and allow the participants to join. Contact UNIT's TechZone at ex.97777 or firstname.lastname@example.org for access.
Working with the Villanova Urban Stormwater Partnership's (VUSP), UNIT has built a Weather Kiosk station on the 3rd floor of CEER to view weather data from several weather data devices in the region, on campus, and the Green Roof in CEER. These devices will give statistical analysis on various types of weather data and produce an interactive dashboard for analysis.
Using Loggernet Software we are retrieving data from Campbell Scientific weather dataloggers via the network using Real Time Monitor and Control (RTMC) software. The idea is to present customized graphs, tables, dials, and digital values to represent weather aspects from all the weather devices.

Be aware of the dangers of shopping online and ways you can protect yourself. Many of us will choose to shop online and unfortunately this is also a criminal’s favorite time of the year to commit online or financial fraud, so stay aware!
